I have seen some JHBrandt rooms that incorporate space array, radiator or some other type of scattering grids above the mix position. Wouldn't the angle on this type of treatment be critical?

Would love to hear John's opinion, but of course, all are welcome.


Sorry for the late reply...

The angle is not necessary, we place them parallel to the floor. These space couplers (Russ Berger) effectively double the absorption of trapping above them and also offer some diffraction to help disguise reflections from the console and other things in front of the speakers.

The absorption doubling is accomplished by the 'channeling' effect of these grids. They 'bounce' the sound upwards, no matter the incident angle.
